Getting started, connection

card reader). Pay attention to the correct orientation when inserting the memory card;
do not use force!

If you wish to remove the memory card from the card reader (or to disconnect the
card reader from the computer), wait until all read/write accesses to the memory card

Tips for SDXC memory cards
In order to use SDXC memory cards with Windows XP, an update of Windows XP is
required. Only then will the "exFat" file system of SDXC memory cards be supported.
You can download the update at www.microsoft.com. To find the update, enter the
search terms e.g."exfat windows xp" in the search bar of your Internet browser.
With Windows Vista you have to install the service pack 1 in order for the card reader
to support SDXC cards.
Newer versions of windows directly support the "exFAT" file system of SDXC memory
cards (e.g. Windows 7 or higher).
